If you are passing near the Parlament, so go to have a photo with Imer Nagy. It's nothing special, but if you see him take a photo with him.

Walking in the center saw this bridge with a statue? Then found out it is a statue of the Hungarian politician and prime minister Mr. Imre Nagy.

A lovely memorial to Imre Nagy who was premier in 1956 during the revolution, later executed by the Soviets. He's looking wistfully over at Parliament. It's a very fitting monument to a man who opposed Stalin.

This is a lovely sculpture in a quiet area (well it was on Sunday!). You can walk onto bridge and have a picture taken by your friend. Just along from here about 100 metres is a statue of PresidentRonald Reagan!!!!!!

In the middle of the city is a statue of Imre Nagy. The guide told us the history about the first premier of Hungary.

The monument itself is interesting and offers a good photo opp. However, seeing the monument should be an impetus to learning about Imre Nagy and the role he played in Hungarian history.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
